    Oakland Raiders defensive assistant Randy Hanson was treated in a Napa hospital emergency room on Aug. 5, telling police he was struck by a member of the staff during a meeting earlier that day, according to sources.

    Napa police Lt. Brian McGovern confirmed that a member of the Raiders staff claimed to police that he was injured by another staff member, but McGovern would not name the victim and would not release the report itself, citing confidentiality.

    However, according to a police source and another source with knowledge of the situation, Hanson was the Raiders staffer treated in the emergency room at Queen of the Valley Medical Center in Napa, Calif., near the Raiders' training camp site, on Wednesday, Aug. 5.

    A police report was filed from the hospital early the following morning, around 1 a.m. PT on Aug. 6, when police arrived, but no charges have been filed as of this time, McGovern said.

    Numerous attempts to reach Hanson were unsuccessful. Raiders senior executive John Herrera, when asked about the police report, said, "It's an internal matter and will be handled as such."
    NFL Network reporter Jason La Canfora will have more on this story during NFL Total Access, airing at 7 p.m. ET.

    Hanson told police he was struck by a member of the staff during a meeting at the team's hotel in Napa and that he decided to seek medical attention when pain in his jaw was too severe for him to sleep. Law enforcement officials were dispatched to Queen of the Valley Medical Center by hospital personnel, and not Hanson himself, McGovern said, as is mandated in cases where assault is suspected. The extent of any injuries is not detailed on the report, as X-Rays had not yet been read to determine whether or not the victim had suffered a broken jaw, McGovern confirmed.

    According to police, the victim in such a case has up to six months to report a misdemeanor assault. If his jaw was broken, that would constitute a felony, and the victim would have up to a year to press charges.

    Hanson, 41, is in his third year with the Raiders. He served previously as a defensive backs coach. He also spent one year with St. Louis and three years with Minnesota.
